General info

1.weight

14kg

27.8kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.thickness

290mm

425mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.height

340mm

390mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.Uses ground coffee
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
Ground coffee, especially if freshly roasted and ground, results in much better quality coffee than the kind of results you get with pods or capsules.
5.volume

23171cm³

54697.5cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
6.width

235mm

330mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Components

1.Has a commercial steam wand
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
It comes with a commercial style steam wand as opposed to a pannarello steam wand. These are harder to master but can allow you to produce better, richer milk froth.
2.Has a steam wand
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
It has a steam wand, which allows you to make steamed/frothed milk to create other drinks from an espresso base.
3.Has a pressure gauge
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
One of the most important aspects to pulling a great espresso is the amount of pressure used. Aspects such as how tightly tamped the portafilter is can affect the pressure and therefore the overall quality of the extraction. A pressure gauge helps you to adjust your process to achieve a perfect 9 bar of pressure.
4.Has a 58mm portafilter
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
A 58mm portafilter is the most common size in the industry, offering a greater range of accessories to purchase such as portafilter baskets and tampers.
5.Uses E61 group head
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
An E61 group head provides excellent temperature stability, a key aspect of producing great espresso. It also has the benefit of a passive pre-infusion feature.
6.Uses E61 brew group
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
The E61 brew group is the industry standard brew group for espresso machines, which delivers consistent, stable heat in order to help pull the perfect espresso.

Water source

1.Water tank is transparent
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
With a transparent water tank you can easily see when it needs to be filled up. This is important as attempting to make an espresso with an empty tank can damage the machine.
2.Has integrated filter
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
An integrated water filter produces cleaner water for brewing espresso. It also helps to prevent the build up of limescale.
3.Has a removable water tank
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
The water tank is removable, making it easier to refill.
4.Has a hot water outlet
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
A hot water outlet is useful as it can be used to heat cups, as well as making americanos, long blacks and teas.
5.boiler size

0.3l

1.8l

A higher capacity boiler means that you don’t have to refill it as often.
6.Has direct water connection
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
The coffee machine can connect directly to the water supply. This ensures you never have to refill the machine with water.

Maintenance

1.Indicates when drip tray is full
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
With a drip tray indicator the machine informs you of when you need to empty the tray.
2.Has cleaning alert
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
The machine alerts you when it requires cleaning.
3.Has dry puck feature
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
At the end of the extraction process, all moisture is removed from the puck. This allows you to easily tap out the coffee from the portafilter afterwards, reducing mess and the need to clean it as often.
4.Has sleep mode
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
After a certain period of being idle, the device will switch to a sleep mode to conserve power.
5.Prevents overheating
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
It has an internal fuse/thermal sensors which prevents the machine from overheating.

Features

1.Has a 3-way valve
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
A 3-way solenoid valve relieves the portafilter of pressure and moisture after the extraction. This produces a dry puck which can easily be removed afterwards. It also means that you don’t have to wait for the pressure to equalise, so that you can make back-to-back coffees.
2.Has a shot timer
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
The time taken to pull an espresso shot is one of four key elements, and should be around 19-22 seconds. Once you have the grind, dose and tamp correct, you can use the shot clock to time the pull perfectly.
3.Can brew and steam simultaneously
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
With a double boiler or heat exchanger system, you can brew and steam milk at the same time. This has an advantage over single boiler machines where you have to wait between brewing and steaming for the temperature to adjust.
4.Has a pre-infusion function
Rancilio Silvia V3
Rocket Espresso Professionale
With a pre-infusion function you get a low pressure of water before it ramps up to around 9 bar of pressure. This gently expands the grinds to get a smooth extraction and to help prevent channeling in the cake.
5.programmable buttons

0

0

These buttons can be programmed for different types of coffee such as an espresso, doppio or ristretto. This means once you have mastered a particular style of coffee, you can get it the same every time.
